Jason Alba is the brand behind JibberJobber.com, which was created during his first real job search beginning January 2006. After having a successful career in IT and business strategy, Jason found himself in the job market, which was supposedly a “job seeker’s market.” Jason quickly found that a job seeker’s market does not mean the job search will be easy or short. Frustrated by the lack of real tools for job seekers, he decided to move forward on a tool that allowed a job seeker to manage and organize a job search. As the months passed, and as Jason learned the importance of networking, he incorporated a major networking piece into JibberJobber. This has shifted its focus from a tool just to be used during one job search into a tool to be used to manage job transitions during your entire career. The tool is like a personal relationship manager that allows you to do everything you need to do to manage a job search and optimize your network relationships.
Jason is one the the smartest, outgoing personal relationship managers himself. He, in my opinion, is not only the face of his company, but actually lives his idea through his passion. Jason’s brand is outgoing, creative and willing to form a relationship and a network between any professional he meets. He understands the power of building relationships, and uses his blog as a conversation starter. If you read his blog, you will gather that it is almost as if he were to speak it himself and that is Personal Branding at it’s best. Jason is well deserving of the bronze Personal Brand award for 2007, being one of only 6 chosen to receive these awards a year. He has a high impact on your life, in a short period of time, with both his toolset, blog and brand. I’ve had the pleasure of working with him on some projects and he is one of the people that helped me jump-start this blog.
